Absolutely BRAND NEW ORIGINAL US HARDCOVER STUDENT 6th Edition / ISBN-10: 0470534923 / Mint condition / Never been read / Shipped out in one business day with free tracking.

This textbook has been in constant use since 1980, and this edition represents the first major revision of this text since the second edition. It was time to select, make hard choices of material, polish, refine, and fill in where needed. Much has been rewritten to be even cleaner and clearer, new features have been introduced, and some peripheral topics have been removed.

The authors continue to provide real-world, technical applications that promote intuitive reader learning. Numerous fully worked examples and boxed and numbered formulas give students the essential practice they need to learn mathematics. Computer projects are given when appropriate, including BASIC, spreadsheets, computer algebra systems, and computer-assisted drafting. The graphing calculator has been fully integrated and calculator screens are given to introduce computations. Everything the technical student may need is included, with the emphasis always on clarity and practical applications.

Paul Calter is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Vermont Technical College and Visiting Scholar at Dartmouth College. A graduate of The Cooper Union, New York, he received his M.S. from Columbia University and a MFA from Norwich University. Professor Calter has taught technical mathematics for over twenty-five years. He is a member of the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges, the Mathematical Association of America, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the College Art Association, and the Author's Guild.

Calter is involved in the Mathematics Across the Curriculum movement, and has developed and taught a course called Geometry in Art and Architecture at Dartmouth College under an NSF grant.

Professor Calter is the author of several other mathematics textbooks, among which are the Schaum's Outline of Technical Mathematics, Problem Solving with Computers, Practical Math Handbook for the Building Trades, Practical Math for Electricity and Electronics, Mathematics for Computer Technology, Introductory Algebra and Trigonometry, Technical Calculus, and Squaring the Circle: Geometry in Art and Architecture.

Michael Calter is Associate Professor at Wesleyan University. He received his B.S. from the University of Vermont. After receiving his Ph.D. from Harvard University, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of California at Irvine. Michael has been working on his father's mathematics texts since 1983, when he completed a set of programs to accompany Technical Mathematics with Calculus. Since that time, he has become progressively more involved with his father's writing endeavors, culminating with becoming co-author on the second edition of Technical Calculus and the fourth edition of Technical Mathematics with Calculus. Michael also enjoys the applications of mathematical techniques to chemical and physical problems as part of his academic research. Michael is a member of the American Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Chemical Society.

Michael and Paul enjoy hiking and camping trips together. These have included an expedition up Mt. Washington in January, a hike across Vermont, a walk across England on Hadrian's Wall, and many sketching trips into the mountains.
